Bandit XX Length

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Got the chance at long last to demo the XX over Xmas and liked it a lot. Only problem is I only got to try the 184 length. Wondering if I am likely to benefit from going up to 191. Weight varies between 170 and 184 pounds. I am 5'11'' and an advanced level skier. Can ski aggresively but not always. Like to ski powder but enjoy bumps and fast trails also. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

I have the 191, and you and I are very similar in build and skier type. I love em'. It ski's a bit longer but not enough to make a huge difference. The only thing you may notice is that it will take a bit more effort in the bumps and trees with the added length. However in early morning cordoroy with no one around they really shine!

Excellent ski, I've had two pairs over the last four years. I currently have last years in a 191. They are for sale now because I have this years in a 184. I downsized because this years ski is a little wider and has more sidecut. It's definitly quicker but still has good float. Smoother in the crud too. The shorter length makes it a lot better in the bumps for me. I'm around 190 lbs. right now. I wouldn't hesitate going for the 184 if I were you. you're gonna love them.
